    Best answer: Have you ever had a movie so vivid you believed it right up to the end? Years ago I lived in an apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that overlooked an abandoned house with tightly boarded windows on the first floor. Someone maintained the grounds and the outside of the building, but we never saw the work being done. One day I was doing my laundry in the basement when I noticed a door in the corner I had never seen before. The door lead to a long narrow corridor that I followed to a narrow staircase. I climbed the stairs and opened a door into a large room empty of furniture. To my right a wall of windows boarded up outside. I walked to them and looked out through a two finger size separation in the boards of one window. I was looking at my apartment building across the street. Somehow, I was in the abandoned house. Suddenly a very deep voice said, "Get out of here right now!" I woke up in my apartment. I got up and walked to my living room. I looked out the windows toward the building across the street. For the first time I noticed a slight separation in the boards of the window directly opposite me. I had never noticed that before.

  • What is Cthulhu exactly?

    Best answer: In HPL's conception, he's essentially an alien monstrosity from a region of the universe with different physical laws to our own which accounts for his various apparently supernatural powers, such as shape shifting and telepathy.

    Best answer: In HPL's conception, he's essentially an alien monstrosity from a region of the universe with different physical laws to our own which accounts for his various apparently supernatural powers, such as shape shifting and telepathy. He is not really a god as such but is immensely powerful compared to a human being and is described as not really having any interest in humans, although he is worshipped by various cults around the world.

  • What's a good name for a witch?

    Best answer: Do you think that "Moby Dick" would have been a different book if Melville had decided to call the narrator 'Ezekiel' instead of 'Ishmael'? Do you think that "1984" would have been a different book if Orwell had opted to go with 'Simon Williams' instead of 'Winston... show more
    Best answer: Do you think that "Moby Dick" would have been a different book if Melville had decided to call the narrator 'Ezekiel' instead of 'Ishmael'? Do you think that "1984" would have been a different book if Orwell had opted to go with 'Simon Williams' instead of 'Winston Smith'? Your readers won't care whether you decide to call your witch 'Agatha', 'Mureska', or 'Zepheria', so long as you write a decent story. A good writer could choose a name like 'Ann', 'Becky' or 'Cate' and it really wouldn't matter. Many would-be amateur authors put insane amounts of effort into selecting character names, only to produce unreadable rubbish. Call your character 'Witchy McWitchface' and insert a name when you find one that you think fits well enough to settle on. Don't waste time diddling over it now.

  • A book I wrote has "Earth" capitalized when it shouldn't be?

    I just discovered that a book I wrote which was published recently has this sentence "The meteors fall to the Earth from the darkness of space."

    I just discovered that a book I wrote which was published recently has this sentence "The meteors fall to the Earth from the darkness of space." I assume that it probably doesn't matter THAT much since it is rather confusing of when it is not necessary to capitalize it. No book is perfect. Many books have a few small insignificant mistakes like this one here and there. I just hope this one little hiccup doesn't discredit the whole book.

  • How many pages long should a chapter be?

    Best answer: A chapter is as long as it should be. It can be one page it can be 50 pages. You will write and come to natural breaks where it makes sense to end the chapter. Do not write to fit a certain chapter length. It'll just make it more difficult for you and it could negatively affect the quality of your book. Also,... show more
    Best answer: A chapter is as long as it should be. It can be one page it can be 50 pages. You will write and come to natural breaks where it makes sense to end the chapter. Do not write to fit a certain chapter length. It'll just make it more difficult for you and it could negatively affect the quality of your book.

    Also, don't count in pages. Do a word count instead. The number of words on a page vary according to font, font size, page layout etc. If you calculate with word count then everyone will know what you're talking about - it is what is used among professional authors and in the publishing industry.

    So, don't worry about chapter length, just go ahead and write. :)

    Best answer: Writing something worth reading isn't easy, but that's no reason why you shouldn't try,.
    Best thing is to read a lot first. There are lots of books out there apart from The Hunger Games: read them.

    Then think about what it is that you like about the books you've read, and how you can adapt those elements for yourself.

    You 'develop characters' by trial and error. You have them doing things, and seeing how they react to problems.

    You do NOT spend a week drawing up a list of their favourite foods and colours and which way their bedroom window faces, you do not spend hours deciding this character will have messy black hair and that one will have long red hair almost to her shoulders but not quite, and most of all you will NOT ask people on Yahoo to provide you with names that 'fit' a feisty blonde with green eyes who loves dogs and tennis and is 'loyal' but shy.

    Go to it!

Quality is also important but if you self-publish enough crap books, might you be more likely to get more attention . . . especially since crap like Twilight and Fifty-shades are popular and also King writes like a book a month. Since art is so subjective, isn't quantity more important? What's your opinion?

  • How to correctly write a time skip?

    Like I'm describing a situation in my book, and then I want to skip ahead a year later. Should I just say something like, "one year later?" I feel like if I were to write that, I'd be making too quick of a jump without giving readers a heads up to the new year.

    Best answer: I common English terminology maybe, but in technical terminology tailored by a manufacturer for a product, they may mean the same thing, they may not, or they may have to specific meaning at all. Sometimes "version" will be used to reference a major number of the produce and "release" will be used to reference a minor update or enhancement. For example, for Windows 10, the version may be referred to as 10, but there frequent releases of patches and updates to fix bugs or security issues.
